Ever have a list for your kids for the holiday's and wish you could get all the toys!!!???

I know our children want 100 things each or each thing is $100 or more lol!

Seems that they are into any new thing, toy, gadget, game, pets, (real or fake!)
It's so annoying that we don't own a garage or have a basement for them to keep LOTS of things. OR..... at least the big items.

  • My kids make a list but know Santa will only bring three thing and that Santa will decide which three based on what other kids ask for. But sometimes it would be nice, then again I have 8 so it could get very spendy!

  • Yes but I don't think they would play with it all and I don't like looking at a pile of toys lying around the house

  • I used to. I was a single mom of 3 for 3 years and things were VERY tight, I worked endless hours to get my kids the toys they wanted for Christmas. A few weeks ago my daughter and I were sorting through her toys for a garage sale - I was ooohhhing and aaahhhing over their old toys and she asked why I was so attached. I told her that I just remembered working so hard to buy them their toys so we could have a nice Christmas. She said "Mom, we would have had a nice Christmas without all these things" (she's 9!), so this year I've just realized that I don't need to stress about getting them everything they want - they know it's about us just being together!
